A few local nonprofits that I love to give to and volunteer with:
1. Sacramento Valley Conservancy. This is an amazing local organization that preserves the beautiful open landscape nearby our community. I have done a few volunteering events cleaning up trash from newly acquired land. They are also active in the local community leading community hikes, mountain bike rides, photography, and trail runs at Deer Creek preserve. A simple way to give is using smile amazon. Click on the link and 0.5% of your purchase at no cost to you will go towards this amazing organization. smile.amazon.
2. Another great organization is Mj’s’ project.
Drop off locations for bras/loafers/clothing, etc:

4. Women’s Empowerment
I recently volunteered here to help teach computer literacy skills to homeless women. They take attendance for every class, and share their struggles at the beginning of group and also set their positive intentions. They are hosting a stocking drive right now. Women and teen stockings are especially needed. There is a wishlist for the stockings or you can also donate online through their website.
Since 1944 Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento (CRH) has been a refuge for children and youth affected by abuse, neglect and trauma. As the region’s first line of defense for children and youth who have been removed from their homes, CRH is committed to breaking the cycle of abuse and to changing the lives of abused children and their families.
